Roma Regrouping After Missing Out on Number One Target

Roma won’t win the fray for Davide Frattesi, but they will get roughly €10M from his move to Inter, as they are entitled to 30 percent of the fee. The Giallorossi tried to overtake the rivals until the last corner, but the midfielder had made up his mind and La Beneamata held on to its lead. They will have to address the role in a different way.

According to Il Tempo (via FanPage), José Mourinho and director Tiago Pianto don’t see eye-to-eye on Daichi Kamada. The coach would like to sign him and turn him into a box-to-box, as he did with Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Instead, the exec considers him too offensive-minded and similar to their other contributors. It remains to be seen who will prevail.

Roma are examining the terms for a few other quality midfielders. PSG could loan out Renato Sanches, but they have reservations because of his injury history.

Marcel Sabitzer will be on the move again after not being retained by Manchester United. However, his €6M salary is a hurdle. That was the case also for Georginio Wijnaldum last summer, and they eventually found a way to onboard him.

Our Take on Roma

Another technical and finesse player after Houssem Aouar would be overkill given their conservative style. They wouldn’t be wrong in finally adding a pure regista to their squad, but none of the targets fits the description.
